Shadows of the Emerald City



I swear the world is intent on keeping me from working on my book/s. Having sworn off short stories for the time being, I stumble across guidelines for a Wizard of Oz based anthology - The Terrible Wizard of Oz: Shadows of the Emerald City.

They are looking for stories up to 10,000 words and the deadline is July 31st 2009.

Maybe if I click my heels three times I will think of something for this . . .

Don't do it Cate! Stick with those books!

And whatever you do...don't fall asleep. The flying monkeys will take you to the wicked witch's castle.

It's a terrifying movie, should make for a killer anthology : )

Jodi Lee said...

Ooh, this looks like it'll be fun. ;)

Why do you keep introducing us to all of these good ideas?

Barry Napier said...

Cool find. What about all the other creatures in need who weren't lucky enough to run into Dorothy? Surely they'd resent the Wizard's largesse to his newfound cronies, the Tin Man, the Lion, and the Scarecrow.

I smell revolution in the air.

I feel like the evil witch who pulled everyone away from their novels. Maybe now you will understand why my blog is green.

OT: Have you been following Neil Gaiman on Twitter?

Catherine J Gardner said...

I still don't know how you keep up with all of this stuff. :)

It's part of my aim to become 'Procrastinator 2009'... There's still competiton out there.

Will not consider scary Oz story...will not consider scary Oz--ooh, wait, something about the Hungry Tiger finally going nuts and eating everyone!

I hope they're as familiar with the whole Oz series as I am, or they're going to reject me immediately. ("Hungry Tiger? WTF, who's the Hungry Tiger?")

I get the impression from the editor's comments on the Permuted Press forum that he is familiar with all the books. I sadly have only watched the movie.

That sounds fun...

Oh my. Wizard of Oz is still one of my all-time favorite films. And lord knows, like everybody else, I have my own little macabre vision of a story inside the Oz universe. I may have to take a crack at it before the deadline.

Good luck. :D
